On February 3, 2023, the California Secretary of State announced that CIPA's referendum on SB 1137 officially qualified for the November 2024 ballot. It also means the law prohibiting new oil and gas wells within 3,200 fee of homes, schools, and hospitals is stayed and cannot be enforced until after the election.
The Stop the Energy Shutdown petition, backed by nearly a million Californians, qualified in record time and will give voters a say on a measure that was rushed through the state legislature at the last minute with little review and no scientific backing.
